Lisa Rinna Says She's 'Super Proud' Of Her Daughter For Getting Candid About Her Battle With Anorexia
After Lisa Rinna’s daughter Amelia opened up about her battle with an eating disorder, she did not only receive a lot of support from her fans but from her own mom as well. The reality TV star made it clear that she was very proud of Amelia for speaking up about struggling with anorexia and bringing more awareness to it.
While in attendance at Beautycon this weekend, Lisa and her 18 year old daughter chatted with ET.
Asked how she feels about going public with her disorder last year, Amelia told the news outlet that ‘I think everything's bittersweet. It was hard at the beginning, but I am so happy and grateful I did it and I would never take it back. Honestly, I am just proud of myself and I am proud to say that.’
That is when Rinna also stated that she is ‘proud of her’ as well.
She continued: ‘I'm super proud. Every parent knows you are only as happy as your least happy child, if I may say. So it is tough, you know? But it is been great. Amelia has been great. and I think we have helped a lot of people. Sh has helped a lot of people. So I am just proud.’
As you may know, Amelia took to social media to tell all about her battle with anorexia last year in March.
She posted a pic featuring herself in a red bathing suit and in the caption, she wrote a lengthy message in which she spoke up about what she’d been through.
The teen admitted that the previous year, in 2017, she had definitely not been Okay.
This later prompted her mother to also admit that she might not have had a very healthy relationship with food either.
Lisa admitted that her own problems could have affected her daughter while growing up.
